This is amazing stuff, a virtual encyclopedia of lost downtown Los Angeles commerce and culture. It's also something of a crime scene.

A little context, from the 1947project:


00:00 Color version of PET0980_R-4_LA. Process plate, exterior night, street in Los Angeles, moving shot from automobile, reverse angle with car in pursuit, along 8th Street (Olympic Theatre and RKO visible). Some turns.
02:18 Process plate, night, moving, from automobile, 3/4 reverse angle, nighttime streets of downtown Los Angeles. Stores, theaters and marquees, pedestrians on sidewalk, traffic.
Followed by various takes.

Color appears unnatural, but good-quality material of nighttime Los Angeles.
